Denise McCarney - Headteacher
Headteacher, Denise McCarney.
The Islington Community Schools Federation held its inaugural meeting on September 13th 2018.
Copenhagen Primary School, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Secondary School, Holloway secondary school and Vittoria Primary Schools are now working together with one governing body.
The Federation has a clear vision to ensure that the young people in our schools have the best possible educational opportunities and the chance to shine. We want to empower our students to achieve more than they ever dreamed was possible, to raise their aspirations and give them the qualifications and self- confidence to build successful futures.
Working in partnership is so important. We can spread great practice, we can learn from each other, we can share resources. This spirit of collegiality is critical in an educational world which engenders competition between schools often to the detriment of the young people.
Each school still has its own identity and headteacher; families will still maintain that close contact with one school community but know that their school is part of something special and that there is support for any challenges we may face.
Our name is still a ‘working title’ and we are open to suggestions as to what we may call ourselves in the future. A list of governors and their responsibilities is below.
